Eviews - list of features to include

Postby tvonbrasch » Wed Oct 12, 2016 12:15 pm


Here is a list of features (in prioritised order) I hope you can add to the next version of Eviews:

1) Allow for exogenous variable to enter the cointegrating space in a VEC models, this has been on your to do list for five years see: http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5340&p=26814#p26814 and http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=11368&p=39922#p39922

2) Stochastic simulation of model containing future values of endogenous variables, see User Manual II, page 756 or post:
http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15556&p=51947&hilit=dynare#p51947 (a minimum would be to make an addin that passes an Eviews model over to Matlab which is then solved by Dynare and where the results are automatically transferred back to Eviews)

3) Allow for importing data directly using API in Jason-Stat format. There are now plenty of organisations offering data freely using APIs, see e.g.,
- National Institute for Statistics of Italy<http://apistat.istat.it/?q=help>,
- Statistics Norway<http://data.ssb.no/api/?lang=en>,
- UK’s Office for National Statisticshttps://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/apiservice/web/apiservice/home,
- Statistics Sweden<http://www.scb.se/en_/About-us/Open-data-API/API-for-the-Statistical-Database-/>,
- Statistics Denmark<http://www.dst.dk/da/Statistik/statistikbanken/api.aspx>,
- Statistics Greenland<http://bank.stat.gl/pxweb/en/Greenland/>, S
- tatistics Finland<http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/en/StatFin/>,
- Instituto Galego de Estatística<http://www.ige.eu/web/mostrar_paxina.jsp?paxina=004015&idioma=gl>,
- Central Statistics Office of Ireland<http://www.cso.ie/webserviceclient/>,
- United Nations Economic Commission for Europe<http://w3.unece.org/PXWeb/en>,
- Eurostat<http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/json-and-unicode-web-services/about-this-service>
- OECD https://data.oecd.org/api/

4) Allow the endogenous variable in a model to enter more than once to the left hand side of the equality sign, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=12959&p=47562#p47562. As it is now, one has to rewrite e.g., logit models to overcome this problem.

5) Improve the Eviews optimizer, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15917&p=53141#p53141.

6) Printing of Norwegian vowels in pdf documents, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16318&p=53378#p53378

7) Allow Eviews to connect with https addresses, see forum post [url]
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18214 [/url]

Keep up the great work, and thanks again for making the rgets addin (http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?t=18338)
